terrorist training ground. he failed to acknowledge the emergence of isis and now they are be heading americans and sending their people to attack us on our own soil. in a moment we will hear from the president himself. he is holding a news conference with david cameron. two questions will be allowed for president obama. let's hope one of them asks why his anti-terrorist policy is such a failure and what he is going to do about it. ♪ stuart: right from the get go not much change in stock prices, 36 on the dow. look at go pro, highflier last year, moving lower after digital ally, that is a company, says it is considering getting into the consumer camera business itself digital allied makes wearable cameras for police officers. go pro is down 47, twitter bouncing back just a little after those social media stocks
12:02 pm
were slammed across the board yesterday, $0.66 a gain for twitter. activevision, call of duty, advanced warfare was the top game last year, up she goes, 6%. will bouncing back a little, $47 a barrel, dare i say we may be at a bottom after a long collapse in oil? we shall see. there are 23 states in the $1 club where does the average for regular gas is below $2 a gallon. the interest rate barometer 1.79% of the yield on a 10 year treasury earlier it was 173 179 is extremely low. let's get back to terror. i think the president is taking a huge political risk of delivering on his campaign promise to close gitmo by releasing suspected terrorists, a great deal of risk there. the white house press secretary josh ernest defended the move.
12:03 pm
>> only 6% or so of those transfers have been suspected or confirmed to have rejoined the fight. it would be unwise to neglect the fact that the prison at guantanamo bay continues to inspire violent acts around a glow. not as if we can avoid violence by keeping the present open-end keeping them locked up. that continues to be an active source of inspiration recruitment for terrorists. stuart: christian witten is with us. my premise is the president is taking a huge political risk by releasing terrorists and not taking a stand against islamic terror. what say you? >> it is politically stupid and stood for policy but politically this is something the american people support, they are in favor of guantanamo in favor of
12:04 pm
enhanced interrogation, they are opposed to catch and release and opposed to bringing these people stateside and ernest is basically lying. he said 6%, obama administration reported two years ago that 20% of people who are released return to the fight or suspected, probably higher than that because we don't have perfect information. of the five you can expect at least one will return to the fight at a very high level. stuart: explain this to me. why is the president doing this? why such a soft approach to an obvious terror threat? can you explain why he is doing it? >> in two years he was a senator before he decided to run for president, it was like woodstock for the progressive movement. when iraq was going poorly and there must be some other way to approach this whole thing, and ultimately they want to blame america first. it is america to them that causes the autism which they can't call it that, not some
12:05 pm
ancient force that has gone new life in the modern world not a desire to unify mosque and state, things we do and we need to stop doing them. that was the bedrock philosophy of progressivism obama bought into the me is the most ideological president since woodrow wilson and no amount of fact is going to change that. stuart: did you see this? watch your monitor. john kerry is in paris, he says he is not there to apologize but to give a big hug. he brought james taylor, the singer. james taylor to seeing you have got a friend. this happened. this is diplomacy? this is our response to terrorism? john kerry goes to paris, the scene of the disgraceful butchery and brings james taylor to seeing you got a friend? what do you make of this? >> you couldn't make this stuff. if i wrote a novel and put that in it would have to get cut. no one would ever believe it.
12:06 pm
it would be funny if it wasn't so dangerous and provocative because vladimir putin is watching this, the mullahs in tehran are watching this and john kerry ought to go. this is just terrible. also john kerry sphinx there are only two countries in europe germany and france. back to the 2004 campaign we have a broad coalition including places like the u.k. and spain and the dutch and the poles and czechs and none of that mattered to john kerry. he feels up said the we are at crosswords with paris. stuart: this is not going to change. there are two more years of this in which we put a soft face on terror. what do you say? >> it is going to get bad because vladimir putin has gotten no push back to what he is doing to you green. the iranians are swindling us.
12:07 pm
the chinese are doing whatever they want to in the south china sea. iraq and syria have collapsed. the caliphate we were joking about as a punch line year ago has come into being in the middle east and nothing obama is doing is likely to reverse that. stuart: we have a presidential press conference with david cameron from britain coming up later on this morning and we will see what questions the president answers and how he answers them. thanks for joining us. appreciate it. thank you very much. latest fox news poll, two thirds of the country say the u.s. is in recession. the president keeps trumping growth and a strong recovery. cheryl: median income is still at 51,000 and that is where we were in 1995 after inflation. stuart: half the country half the households make more half make less, right in the middle $51,000 a year, same as 1995.
12:08 pm
you tell me. stuart: isn't it down from 53 54,000 in 2006-2007? >> yes, you are correct. you were talking in the last hour we were adding jobs, more and more low-paying jobs we are adding jobs in the service sector, bartenders, waiters, those working at mcdonald's, that is where the job growth is because the unemployment rate has gone down, americans are like i will take whatever i can get and older workers are still struggling those who don't have degrees are still struggling. anyone that has a lower income will come out and say i don't feel good in this recession. i am still in recession. you may not think i am in recession but i am personally and if they vote that we watch out. stuart: more than 2 million illegal immigrants will not only get amnesty under president obama, but they will be eligible to collect social security and medicare benefits that there is more. here's where it gets
12:09 pm
interesting. they can also claim the earned income tax credit. don't be confused by the expression tax credit. this is cash. the amnesty for 2 million people will allow them to claim cash, a check direct from the united states treasury. look who is here, political prospects editor-in-chief cany any down from boston where she is a harvard law undergraduate. >> up from florida this week. stuart: lot of people are going to be outraged at this. this is not some fringe group saying they are going to get the money. this is the congressional budget office. >> absolutely. americans will see this as a slap in the face. you, point out median income, labor force participation, a full 1-third of the country is out of work. this is a problem and in the face of that you have illegal immigrants receiving medicare, social security and earned income tax credits and the heritage foundation points out
12:10 pm
this will cost the american people $2 trillion over the course of an illegal immigrant's life. stuart: specifically the checks and the income-tax credit program, not trillions of dollars, that is probably several billion dollars short-term. >> exactly. stuart: they are here illegally, the president says you can stay here is amnesty. we will give you a social security number and that is all accurate and because of that you get social security benefits medicare benefits and you can apply for a check from the treasury. >> yes and a lot of parents of illegal immigrants that are given legal status under the president and executive order will get green cards and within five years will be eligible for all programs. the 2 trillion number of accounts for what you said plus all the other welfare benefits they will be getting in time. heritage foundation's 2 trillion, he has a lowball estimate. when you look at anything trillion dollar debt, that my
12:11 pm
generation will be paying is troubling. stuart: i don't think people realize this. the amnesty for 5 million immigrants, the congressional budget office says 2 million of them will be eligible for the income-tax credit. i don't think people know that they are going to get a check from the treasury. it is not widely known. >> young people are concerned with the national debt and in favor of illegal immigrants attaining legal status don't take this into account. >> this is a contradiction but young folks generally are on the side of the illegals. a very humane age group but you got to pay for this. >> my generation sees it as part of a new civil rights movement, generosity, friendliness but don't put a price tag on it. when you put a price tag on it it doesn't work out. stuart: it is fundamentally unfair. you got people in this country who are struggling and we are
12:12 pm
going to divert money and give it to people who have been given amnesty. >> 55% of americans say they are falling behind financially. 55 present and you add the illegal immigrants and give them status and checks. stuart: the president is buying votes. come on in 2 to 5 million people, we will give you cash, you better vote for us, he is not saying that but that is what is going on. cheryl: you wants led hispanic vote. everybody wants that vote. stuart: on my time? i am paying for this? >> bring up the equity is inevitable that you flagrantly violated the law and are rewarded benefits. stuart: i came here legally. i got my green card legally. no one gave me a check. i didn't look for a check. welcome to new york. of pleasure i am getting exasperated here but you are calling me down. thanks very much.

because we are told the entire press conference including opening statements will probably last 45 minutes. if you do your mack you are right. stuart: any sign of them so far? it was supposed to be 12:15 and now is sart:8. where are they? >> they may still be in the meeting. they were scheduled to talk ophe in3 for an hour, isis, russia, the ukraine trade, and they run a little late given the short amount of time and had a working dinner last night. stuart: i am looking at the scene, the prime minister and the president will be standing. and stand ups in front of podiums as we speak. i you going to be in there? i want to know where you are going to sit?
12:19 pm
is there a pecking order? >> rich edson is in there because it is team coverage to have somebody, one of us is out here to do the reporting. and assigned seating in the briefing room. and there are a bunch of seats for folks who don't have assiteaed seating, and s wi a. pred for its in the past and there is plenty of room and rich will be in there in case it is a % fer bstion. nt sagen: i was curious to the reporters were going to be. and the white house correspondent, jonathan carl is at cbs. and actually representing this

night and had a cool situation where they took pictures and no one was allowed to asketeer bstions later but they heard a camera saying we got a lot done. who knoani? thg n are not there yet. stuart: we are waiting for the president and the prime minister to appear. as we we we will take a short commercial break. we have a lot more news in a moment. 3rd and 3. 58 seconds on the clock, what am i thinking about? foreign markets. asian debt that recognizes the shift in the global economy. you know, the kind that capitalizes on diversity across the credit spectrum and gets exposure to frontier and emerging markets. if you convert 4-quarter p/e of the s&p 500 its yield is doing a lot better... if you've had to become your own investment expert, maybe it's time for bny mellon a different kind of wealth manager ...and black swans are unpredictable.

12:25 pm
to we are awaiting a joint news conference. it will be held in front of those two podiums. on the big board right now we should note that as the news conference is about to get underway, the news conference is underway. the dow stock that shaving about 20 points off the dow industrials. remember when apple was $119? that was last november. i want to play for you part of a speech from congressman trey.
12:26 pm
>> president obama announced one of the largest constitutional paragraphs ever by a chief executive. he did claire, unilaterally, that almost five onion undocumented aliens will receive the action under some new definition under proclamation. stuart: he is responding to president obama. a whole line of the toes right there. vetoing the 40 hour workweek. vetoing the keystone pipeline. will they back up up with this series of vetoes? lisa joins us now. how far to the left are they prepared to be dragged by this
12:27 pm
income that president? >> it really represented the end. he really has not had to use his veto threat yet. it is to be seen how much he will actually use his veto authority. president obama is sending a strong message to republicans that it is my way or the highway. moving forward unilaterally on immigration. he has also said that message by making these sort of veto threats. we need to be sending legislation like the keystone pipeline to his desk.
12:28 pm
stuart: we just brought the news. 2 million of these illegal immigrants that will be granted amnesty by the president, up to 2 billion of them will be allowed to get benefits, as well as a check from the government. 2 million people. this is the congressional budget office. dooley and this did immigrants will get a check from the united states treasury. i am wondering how many democrats will back it up.
12:29 pm
where is this money coming from? we cannot afford this. >> the democrats are in trouble here. why are we giving amnesty illegals checks from the government? are they going to vote for it? will they do that in the senate? you tell me. >> it is income that upon us to tell the american people why these policies are bad. amnesty may sound good to americans. we need to explain why those things are bad. it is because taxpayers are the ones that will end up paying the cost. it is our responsibility to make that case and tell americans. stuart: there is some movement there in the room at the white
12:30 pm
house. the news conference is about to begin. we are waiting for the two men to appear. we are told it will be imminent. we will be able to listen in when it happened. the president will almost certainly be asked about terrorism. i suspect he will be asked why he does not call it islamic terrorism. why is he releasing prisoners from gitmo out into the population? are you expecting any rich wreath? >> all we have seen is weakness from this precedent.
12:31 pm
we see these things happen across the world. we are sitting idly by. we have a president that is afraid to declare a war on terror. stuart: he does not want to admit that on his watch islamic terror has been reignited. right after that election, up comes isis. the president seems to have a war that. i think he is very concerned that it does not get out there. i think that is where he is coming from. >> we have seen someone who is repeatedly were concerned about his legacy. we have seen this in foreign-policy. we have seen this with
12:32 pm
obamacare. we have seen this time and time again. this is coming, does it surprise you coming from a president that one said that isis is jb? stuart: we are going to take a quick break. we will be back after this. at ally bank no branches equals great rates. it's a fact. kind of like mute buttons equal danger. ...that sound good? not being on this phone call sounds good. it's not muted. was that you jason? it was geoffrey! it was jason. it could've been brenda.

12:36 pm
it could've been brenda. stuart: the joint news conference will start very shortly. there was an agreement released between britain and the united states. >> we just received a fax sheet. this is about cyber security and infrastructure. stuart: peter barnes. as i understand it, he wants america to monitor users of facebook and twitter to help international intelligence. is that right? >> they do not refer to it in this statement. putting pressure on u.s. technology companies.
12:37 pm
stuart: when the two leaders now, their opening statements will be about cyber security. >> that will be part of it. i hope somebody asked the question about this that correction issue. other companies use this technology to protect customer data. >> they will be footing some funding into research. stuart: and encryption system that you cannot break into even if you have a warrant to look into that issue. the prime minister and the president are appearing. let's listen in. >> please have a seat.
12:38 pm
good afternoon everybody. this marks a notable anniversary. 200 years battle in new orleans. we call it a great victory over our mighty united kingdom. our british friends call it a technicality. either way we long since have made up. on this 200th anniversary we count the united kingdom as one of our greatest friends and strongest allies. it is a great leisure to welcome by minister mr. cameron back to the white house. you notice how comfortable the two of us are working together.
12:39 pm
several analyzed how this term has default over time. something confused. what does obama mean? let me put the speculation to rest. david is a great friend. one of the closest and most trusted friends. we see the world the same way. we recognize that, as i have said before. our nations are more secure and our asians are more prosperous. the world is more just. david has been personally and outstanding partner. i thank you. both of our economies are growing and unemployment is falling. we discussed how we can create more jobs for our people.
12:40 pm
we believe that this needs to be the year where the united states and european union make real progress towards the transatlantic trade and investment product. as innovated the economies, we are expanding digital technologies to improve how our government serve our businesses. we decided to expand our cooperation on cyber security to protect our infrastructure businesses and people. we believe that a strong commitment to reducing greenhouse gases will be an essential element of any ambitious live in agreement we seek in paris this year. with regard to security, american tradition unity is
12:41 pm
enabling challenges. on the need to support ukraine's economic and democratic reforms. we need to remain united as we seek a comprehensive plan. additional sanctions on iran would undermine that international unity and set back our chances for a diplomatic solution. as the two leading contributors, we urge the world to continue studying up with resources that are required so that we do not simply stop this disease. in the wake of the vicious attacks in paris, as well as the
12:42 pm
new servicing out of well jump, today we continue to stand unequivocally. with all of our partners that are dealing with this. i know david joins me when i say we will continue to do everything in our power to help france seek the justice that is needed. all of our countries are working together seamlessly. with our combat mission in afghanistan over, we are focused on equipping afghan forces to secure their own country and deny al qaeda any safe haven there. we will continue to count on our british allies as one of our strongest counterterrorism partners. we reviewed our coalition's progress against iseult.
12:43 pm
we are systematically taking out their fighters. we are destroying their infrastructure. we are putting them on the defensive. david and i agree we need to keep stepping up the training of iraqi forces. we will not relent until this terrorist organization is the strike. the attacks also underscored how terrorist roots are actively trying to inspire and support people within our own countries to engage in terrorism. i lead a special session at the security council last fall to rally the world to meet the foreign debt of terrorist fighters. david and the united kingdom continue to be strong partners in this work. we both recognize that intelligence and military force alone will not solve this
12:44 pm
problem. we will keep working together on strategies to counter violent extremism that radicalize this and mobilizes people. especially young people. we also look forward to welcoming our british friends to our summit next month. whether in europe or in america a critical weapon against terrorism is our adherence to our freedoms and values at home. including the poor result and respected tolerance that he finds us as they are diverse. i want to congratulate david on last month agreement. a tribute to the courage and determination of everyone involved. the united states was pleased to
12:45 pm
play a small role in achieving this agreement. we will keep doing what we need to do to support the peace process and a better life for the people of ireland. >> think you very much and thank you for welcoming me to the white house. you are a great friend to britain and to meet personally. we share the same now use. we have seen the world in the same way. most of the time, we speak the same language. in the last six years since you became president and in the nearly five since i have been prime minister, we have faced some big issues on our watch. those challenges fall into one word. security. economic security. national security. at the heart of both issues, the
12:46 pm
values that our country chose, freedom of expression, freedom of law and our democratic institutions. those are the things that make both of our countries strong. even in the midst of the violence, strong leadership will come through to safer homer and brighter days. you have had to deal with massive banking crisis. britain had the highest budget deficit in its peacetime history. five years ago we had 110,000 troops serving together in afghanistan. things to their efforts, today it is afghan forces taking responsibility for security in their country. first and foremost, we have to deal with the warning like crashing in the global economy.
12:47 pm
week rolled in the euro zone. slowdown in emerging markets. we agreed that 2015 could be a pivotal year for ambitious trade deals. the uk is the top destination for american and foreign investments. providing dirty 2000 jobs. america is the uk's against trade partner. we want to build on this. our message on the economy today is simple. we will stick to the course. seen through our economic plans is only sustainable way to create jobs, raise living standards and secure a better future for hard-working people. britain and america both face
12:48 pm
threats to our national security. in recent weeks, we have seen appalling attacks in paris nigeria. the world is sickened by this terrorism. we will not be standing alone in this fight. we know what we are up against and we know how we will win. we face a poisonous ideology. with our allies, we will confront it wherever it appears. the uk is the second largest contributor to the coalition. we will deploy additional intelligence to help iraqi forces on the ground. we will make sure that they are better trained and equipped. most important of all we must
12:49 pm
also fight the poisonous ideology. starting at home. in the uk, we are passing a law where every body must come back extremists. in europe, russia has chosen to tear up the international rule book. it is important that every country understand that and no one in europe forget our history. we will continue to put pressure on russia to resolve this crisis diplomatically. we also reaffirm our obligations as nato partners to stand by our
12:50 pm
allies. we remain absolutely committed to ensuring that iran cannot develop a nuclear weapon. the best way to achieve that now is to create space for negotiations to achieve. we also have to keep threats -- we have agreed to deepen our cyber security corporation to better protect ourselves. finally, we face, the entire world faces the growing threat of diseases. the future, it could be a global pandemic. the u.s. action and library a are beginning to turn the
12:51 pm
corner. we must get better to responding to these global health emergencies. establishing a team of exports to be on standby to deploy anywhere in the world. an international platform to stimulate the design and platform for new drugs. the year we must tackle extreme poverty. we will set nuclear goals. fighting corruption. these two things have the potential to give security to future generations to calm.
12:52 pm
they have stood as kindred spirits and defending our freedoms. today, as we survey a world in flux we stand rooted in the strong history. if our forebears could join us here in the white house today they may find the challenges that we are facing. they may find those hard to comprehend. they will surely recognize the ties that bind us. we stand together so often. we fundamentally believe the same things. that is as true today as it has always been.
12:53 pm
>> thank you david. we will take a few questions. >> this is a bipartisan bill. why do you oppose a bill that would only impose sanctions if you fail to reach an agreement? would you go so far to veto a bill supported by top democrats? i understand you have been making photos -- phone calls to senators on this issue.
12:54 pm
>> i would really like to hear your reaction from the news that mitt romney is running for president again. [laughter] >> on your last question, i have no comment. [laughter] >> on your first question, when i came into office, i made a commitment that iran would not obtain a nuclear weapon. we would do everything that we could to prevent that. that is important for our security and it is important for the world's security. if they obtained a nuclear weapon it would make our job in terms of preventing nuclear materials much more difficult.
12:55 pm
it would threaten directly our closest allies, including israel. ultimately, it could threaten us. what we did was systematically, with the help of congress, construct the most forcible, most effective sanctions regime in modern history. what was remarkable was when i came into office, the world was divided around this issue. iran was united. through some very strong diplomatic work, we united the world and isolated iran. a very hard nosed not and bold
12:56 pm
discussion. the deal that we entered into also froze progress on their nuclear program. rolled back, in some cases the stock piles and materials that they had already accumulated and provided us insight into the program that was unprecedented. we had people on the ground unable to verify and inspect what was going on. that is not just our assessment. the agreement is held in the negotiations have had serious. we have not lost around. in fact, iran's program has not only been -- we have made gains in rolling back some of the stockpiles that they had.
12:57 pm
now, we have on the table currently a series of negotiations over the next couple of months to determine this. what has been remarkable is that unity that we have maintained with the world and isolating iran and forcing them to negotiate in a serious way. it includes not only china, but it also includes russia. they have continued to cooperate with us in setting forth positions that would give us assurances that iran was not developing a nuclear weapon. i have always said that the chances we could actually get a diplomatic feel are probably less than 5050. iran is a regime that is deeply suspicious of the west. deeply suspicious of us. in the past they have secretly
12:58 pm
advanced aspects of this program. we have huge differences with them on a whole range of issues. but, if in fact we still have an opportunity to get a diplomatic deal that provides is verifiable assurances that they are not developing nuclear weapons that is the best possible outcome we can arrive at right now. the question i had for members of congress including those folks in my own party is, why is it that we have to take actions that may jeopardize the possibility of getting a deal over the next 60-90 days. what is it precisely that will be accomplished. i can't tell you what the risks are. i think david shares my assessment here.
12:59 pm
under the interim deal that brought iran to the table, we are not supposed to initiate new sanctions. you will hear argument that these are not new sanctions they are laws putting in place additional sanctions. the likelihood of the entire ago sheesh and collapsing is very high. if that happens, there is no constraint on ironic at that point going back and doing exactly what it had been doing before they came to the table. developing a heavy water reaction. once felt extraordinarily difficult to dismantle. very difficult to hit
1:00 pm
monetarily. accelerating advanced centrifuges that sure did the time span in which they can achieve. they would be able to maintain that the reason they ended negotiations was because the united states was operating in bad faith and blew up the deal. there would be some sympathy to that view around the world. sanctions that we have them placed now would potentially pray because these sanctions are a hardship on countries around the world. the reason that they have hung in there despite their economic interest is because we have shown we are trying to solve this problem. th
